Looks like Caroline Manzo’s sons, Albie and Chris, are expanding their entrepreneurial pursuits yet again. The Manzo’d With Children stars are revealing new plans to grow their empire by explaining their restaurant business.
Albie and Chris have recently closed their restaurant Littletown in order to move the eatery to a new location in Hoboken, which will open in March.
“Little Town’s doors are not closed forever,” the brothers tell Bravo’s The Daily Dish.”We have moved to a more residential area of town to insure what we’ve always wanted to make clear that Littletown is a hometown restaurant and bar,” they say.
“It will be slightly different; we want to have a more open, relaxed atmosphere. The menu concept is still up in the air. We want to keep things fresh without taking away any of the items that people have come to know and love.”
But with Littletown moving it leaves room for the brothers to open up their new restaurant, the Ainsworth.
The Ainsworth, will be opened in Littletown’s former digs and will give off a more Sinatra feel.
“It brings more attention to Sinatra. It makes it more of a 6th Avenue,” Manzo tells NJ.com. “I think that the move is going to draw a lot of attention to an area that, frankly, I think is underutilized.”
“The Ainsworth has already established itself in New York, and Las Vegas, as a truly unique gastropub that is driven on exceptional quality,” Chris and Albie say. “As long as we stay true to what the guys at Paige Hospitality have worked so hard on creating, everyone can expect exactly that in our Hoboken location.”
The duo promises,“It will have plenty of Manzo family flavor!”
I like the Manzo boys, even though I know they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, I’m happy for them. I don’t know what role they play in running the restaurants day to day, but they must be doing something right if they can be a part of expansions and new ventures.
What do you think of the Manzo boys’ new restaurant?
